    22 Months and Growing

    To my precious, independent, strong-willed, and beautiful daughter: I love you. Always and forever. You are teaching me so much about the world.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed I’ve been using the hashtag, #bpcphonephotographyproject, to describe many of my photos along with several more specific ones like #ppp2silhouette or #ppp2light.  These labels refer to a phone photography challenge I participated in through Big Picture Classes. …

    Mother’s Day is around the corner.  My mom has always treasured this little grouping of photos that sits nestled in the edges of her dresser mirror: I was probably 15 months old, happily exploring flowers at my grandparent’s garden.  The little girl on the carousel is my mom.  I recently asked her why the photos…

    One Little Word: January and February

    Loving the process of making my word visible this year by participating in Ali Edward’s One Little Word Class.  Here’s a peak at January: One of the writing prompts included finding a quote reflective of your word.  I had a hard time choosing just one so I created a full page of “Light” quotes.  In…
